Ma-ze-men: Japanese Dry Ramen

In-PersonMission, San Francisco


Pop-up space
Medium (10-15 Guests)
After living in Tokyo for the last 6 years and hundreds of amazing ramen experiences later, I returned a changed man. Ramen in Japan is its own culture, so coming back to SF's budding ramen scene has been one of the most difficult areas of readjustment. This meal is a culmination of many months of obsession, experimentation, and refinement. We finally have an authentic bowl of ramen (Japanese wife approved) that we love eating and can't wait to share with other noodle lovers!

Menu detail

Garlic chive and beansprouts, creamy sesame dressing, yuzu, burnt scallion oil
Small Plate
Our mashed-up take on 2 classic Japanese street foods. A melt-in-your-mouth savory pancake filled with seafood, pickled ginger, & scallions. Topped with a sweet & savory sauce, kewpie mayo, nori powder, and shaved bonito flakes.
Homemade pickles: Citrus Sake Daikon & Dashi Chili Celery
Chicken and Dashi Soup
Served on the side with our Ma-ze-men. A clear chicken stock extracted after 4 hours of simmering before it becomes a paitan soup, cut with our homemade dashi (katsuo, mackerel, anchovy, konbu, shiitake).
Dry Ramen (Ma-ze-men)
Eats like a pasta. 15 hour simmered chicken paitan broth mixed with tare, fermented chili paste, cured jalepeno-garlic-lime paste, and burnt scallion oil to form a special sauce thick enough to perfectly coat chewy medium thick wavy noodles. Topped with a 3 day marinated ramen egg, sous vide chicken, nori, cracklin, umami powder
Japanese Pudding
Chilled Japanese flan style pudding topped with sauce of the day.
